last thursday night had a long history of mental health illnesses. according to the dock toumt from santa clara superior court that we obtained today, the man's name is michael tyree. he was 31 years old and tyree weighed 150 pound. he was very small. he was being housed on the special needs floor of the jail. the irony, tyree was in santa clara county jail on a petty theft misdemeanor where he was sentenced to just five days. he had already, in fact, been given credit for time served. he had served his time already. he was well-known in the court and the jail community. in fact, he had been arrested on these exact same charges and given the same five-day sentence in jail just back in april. now according could the court paperwork, he was waiting to be transferred to a bed at momentum crisis residential treatment center. a mental health facility here in the area. in fact, tyree last appeared
before the mental health court judge steven manley last monday and told the judge he was doing fine. according to sources at the jail, three correctional officers and tyree got into a confrontation. loud words were exchanged and a physical confrontation ensued. several sources tell me that tyree had wounds consistent with a physical beating, with lacerations to his liver and spleen. the autopsy report has yet to be publicly released. when the officers went back to check on tyree about an hour or so later, he was unresponsive and was later declared dead. three different sources tell me that search warrants have been served on each of the correctional officers' homes. sources also tell me that one of the officers had a multiple use of force complaint filed against him several times in the past. nbc bay area spoke to michael tyree's family in louisiana. his sister told us the family was not ready to talk at this time. santa clara's sheriffs office
told us "we are working around the clock on this case and it is an ongoing investigation." back to you. steven, thank you. you can continue to follow us on this breaking story and others on our nbc bay area app. our social platforms, facebook and twitter are also a good resource. in need of their own bail. tonight, exclusive insight into that raid of bail bondsmen in the south bay. we told you that late last week, state law enforcement agents have arrested nearly 3 dozen bail bondsman. chief investigative reporter tony kovaleski is here. the state now says that jail inmates were actually involved in this. >> actually, jess. sources aware of the investigation have told us bail bondsmen were using inmates on the inside, paying them to find new leads to new inmates. leads to new business for some bail bondsmen. after more than a year of investigating, the state moved in and made arrests. these are pictures from the
raids. state agents arresting nearly 3 dozen bail bondsmen accused of illegal business practices, charge with felony crimes. >> this was a significant case in the bail industry. >> george mueller helped direct to raid the for the state department of insurance. >> the best for bail agents is to follow the rules an the regulations in place. what the law is. if you break the law, we're going to investigate those crimes. >> the state says the investigation started with complaints from citizens. they led investigators to listen in on phone calls from inside the santa clara county jail. calls that uncovered the alleged crimes. >> what did they do wrong? >> they violated the law of bail agents. by illegally having people inside the jail -- >> you're looking at mug shots of some of the bail agents working for seven bonds companies in the south bay. the state says they ignored warnings to follow the rules. >> we sent a letter to bail
agents to follow the rules. even d.a. from the office sent out a letter reminding them of the rums. they pushed the envelope and they got caught. >> here's part of the problem. the inmates are in for crimes they're not allowed to work for bail bonds companies. sources have told us in some cases bail bondsmen would use inside information to post bail for inmates who had no idea they were hiring the bail company. we contacted all seven companies with employees arrested during the raid. many are not commenting and three have no comment at this point of the process. jess? >> thank you very much, tony. if you have a tip for tony or anyone in the unit, call us 888-996-tips. or send an e-mail. the finger pointing continues regarding the botched hospital project in santa clara county. today, a new twist. alarming video from the
construction site. those are two workers right there inside of a manhole. this explosion is an example of another problem happening with the construction company. workplace safety issues. tonight, turner construction says this new video is diverting attention from a $300 million mismanaged hospital project near valley medical center in san jose. robert handa first broke the story and has more inside information for us. robert? >> reporter: raj, the explosion on the video is very jarring. not only did it cause a lot of confusion and concern when it happened here a year ago, but it is having a similar effect now as the county tries to determine the future of turner construction on this project. the video of the explosion at santa clara valley medical center last year is jolting and the county says it showed the video today as another example of problems caused by turner
construction that delayed the $300 million hospital bed building. the crew was working on the steam system that supplies steam and chilled water to the hospital facilities when workers heard cracking and popping sounds. >> joel, maybe you should step out for a minute. >> get out! >> for this particular part of the project. they do everything from the beginning to the end, all design, all construction. they have to deliver a complete and usable system. >> reporter: turner construction declined to be on camera but told nbc bay area it took responsibility for the explosion at the time and said the county released a video now to distract from its own mismanagement of the project. it sent us payroll documents
indicating the man hurt in the explosion continued to work and was not seriously injured. the county says the man did not return to work on this project and maintained the bottom line is turner did not run the project effectively. >> first of all, it's a job hazard analysis. anticipate what the hazards are going to be. make sure the employees are well-instructed on what the steps are. >> reporter: now, the release of the video today does seem significant as we reported the two sides met last night to hear turner's plans to complete the project before the county makes a decision on friday. live in san jose, robert handa, nbc bay area news. >> robert, thank you. turner construction is one of the biggest construction companies in the world. it is built or in the process of constructing 126 hospitals around the country. now, turner has constructed 14 sports venues, including levi stadium and madison square garden and behind 137 housing developments in the u.s., two of them here in the bay area.

climate prediction center those that january, february and also march, above average chances of rainfall, specifically for the bay area. this is the first signal we have had of which months could bring us that heavier rainfall. southern california, the highest of a chance of that rainfall. that's pretty typical with el nino. when we look at what happened in 1997, also 1998, we get a look here at the rain averages. san jose, 5.5 inches average in january and february. in that 1997-98 el nino in january and february, we had over 15 inches of rainfall in just two months. will we get as much rainfall as in '97-'98. nobody knows answer to that. one thing for sure, el nino is developing and we'll have some sort of impacts throughout late winter and parts of fall. >> thank you, jeff. a local teacher facing child pornography charges. the authorities searched the home of marshall pfeiffer. this is his picture here.

rent control is a hot issue. the city council might make changes to help renters. so far it's just talk but renters and their advocates have been pushing for a lower ceiling on rent hikes. san jose's current laws allows them to hike rent by 8%. activists want it cut down in half, 4%. the council is considering guidelines to block landlords from overcharging new tenants. helping the homeless get off the streets. a new plan to do that. some of the ideas, though, are raising eyebrows. one calls for turning the old plaza hotel in downtown san jose into rooms for the homeless. neighbors, including the owner of a restaurant a few feet away fear it will hurt their business. that will be considered september 15th. not a good sign for uber. a judge ruled drivers can move forward with a class action lawsuit against uber. the drivers claim they should be labeled as employees instead of

>> it's a face that won't go away any time soon. who gets time off and how much time off is enough? >> i would say that's one of the challenges of unlimited paid parental leave. anybody can use it. >> reporter: for point of reference, two years ago yahoo updated its parental leave policy so men and women can take eight weeks off after having a child. reporting live in sunnyvale, scott budman, nbc bay area news. thank you, scott. breaths let's bring in jeff ranieri to talk about the micro climate forecast. >> it's beautiful now. check it out from weather underground. clear skies at points all the way along the norp coastline. we're not fog-free across the area. ening will side and san francisco, the fog rolling along. we'll take you to the south bay, we have high clouds visible across the santa clara valley from mt. hamilton. looking at the forecast, the main driver of the weather, at
